What will my flowers look like pressed?

Flowers ALWAYS change from the original when pressed, so having accurate expectations is important!

Flowers are a living thing! Please be kind and understanding that some blooms may DRASTICALLY change.

Why do flowers change color when they dry?

It is really similar to the idea of green leaves turning brown in the fall. The nerdy answer is when the plant becomes dormant, the abscisic acid triggers a seal at the base of the plant causing it to cut off the supply of chloroplasts that provide the pigmentation causing the pigment to fade, change or not be as vibrant.

Basically, all this just means that your flowers might not quite look the same as they did fresh, but that is part of the beauty of it! We want to preserve YOUR blooms, so sometimes they may look different in color (pinks can turn very pale or almost white or sometimes brown, reds can turn purple, oranges can turn brown, etc) but we feel this helps to create that beautiful vintage look that will be "thymeless" forever!

Here is a guide to help show you a couple examples of how flowers can change!

Remember, if you are ever overly alarmed by a color change, you can always pay for a repurchase for blooms that dry to be a bit more like your original pigmentation, though they won't have that same sentimental value.
